This card is for the color throwdown. Celery, teal, and pomegranate were the colors we were to use. I chose to watercolor a basket of fruit. Mat it with the teal and pomegranate. For the background the dp has subtle tones of the colors. I stitched it on with a decorative stitch and then put teal brads on each corner. I ran a black sheer ribbon across before mounting the image. It is all put onto a celery base. I punched a pomegranate scalloped oval and a celery oval to mount the sentiment on. I have tried every setting on the camera and cannot find one that captures the fullness of color. The stripe and the image colors are much richer looking in person.
